Bio and Links
Bio Photo Am a retired plastics engineer living near Cleveland, OH. Am the primary researcher on the Rhodes/Rhoades/Rhoads/Roades families who originated in Bedford Co., PA. Three brothers came to Montgomery Co., OH (Dayton area) in 1810. Descendants moved north to Darke and Miami Co., OH and to Rush, Henry, Cass, Fulton Co., IN, and onward. Also the Frederick Osswald family. He immigrated to the Dayton area in 1854 with most of the families still in the area. I also do my late wife's (51 years) Mason family who were primarily along the Ohio River, including Maysville, KY and Manchester, OH. Now I'm working on my new wife's line that is Hungarian and Italian.

RE: Charles, Columbus, and William Rhoades
You are welcome. I have surname changes in my family tree as well. It makes it quite challenging to research them.

Glad I was able to help you in some small way.

Charles, Columbus, and William Rhoades

I apologize for bothering you again. I didn't know if you knew it or not, but, there are memorials set up for Charles Find A Grave# 69319350, Columbus Find A Grave# 69319391, and William Find A Grave# 6931943 under the surname Roads at the Germantown Cemetery. There are photos of their gravestones on their memorials.

I checked the cemetery records, but they are the only Roads listed at the Germantown Cemetery. Their gravestones also show that surname spelling. When I go to the Historical Society next month or to the library, I will try to remember to look to see what records they have that might help.

Have a great weekend and thank you again.

RE: Peter and Susannah Rhoades

Did you find a copy of the death certificates online? If so, would you be able to direct me to where I can print a copy of them to take to the cemetery? I could only find a death record for them on Family Search. The death record does not show the place of burial, only the place of death.

Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Robert and Mary Plocher
You are welcome Roger. I just received an email from the Germantown Cemetery and they do not show any records for Peter Rhoades or Susannah Albaugh Rhoades being buried there either. I haven't found anything on their location yet. I have someone requesting a photo of his gravestone.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

RE: Frederick Hoffman Rhodes
His memorial is managed by Knappny (#48100323)

Even before I got your message I'd sent along his obituary info and links to his parents -- the obit has since been posted, but the links haven't been added. Maybe something went haywire? The manager of his memorial seems responsive -- posting an obit is harder work than accepting a suggestion -- so maybe you might want to re-make the suggestion, and see if it goes through.

Thanks for your help!

RE: Abraham Hildebrand
All the Featherkiles in Lewis County, Kentucky are my family. Eliza Jane is my great great grandfather's sister. I have no idea where she and Abraham are buried.
In a case like that, I just make a note on the child's memorial who their parents are.
If you would rather not do that, that will be ok with me.
Thank you for the fast response and sorry about any confusion that I might have caused.
